Retinal Vessel Extraction with the Image Ray Transform

Retinal Vessel Extraction with the Image Ray Transform
Extraction of blood vessels within the retina is an important task that can help in detecting a number of diseases, including diabetic retinopathy. Current techniques achieve good, but not perfect performance and this suggests that improved preprocessing may be needed. The image ray transform is a method to highlight tubular features (such as blood vessels) based upon an analogy to light rays. The transform has been employed to enhance retinal images from the DRIVE database, and a simple classification technique has been used to show the potential of the transform as a preprocessor for other supervised learning techniques. Results also suggest potential for using the ray transform to detect other features in the fundus images, such as the fovea and optic disc.
